October… or “Pinktocber”, is globally known as the breast cancer awareness month, to raise awareness on the importance of the yearly checkup for breast cancer early detection, and to support the women with cancer, all over the world.
And like every year, under the title “Check Yourself”, Makhzoumi Foundation launched its campaign to raise awareness, and urge women to take the mammogram. The campaign includes posting awareness online on the foundation’s platforms, reducing the cost of the mammogram at the foundation’s primary health care center, raising awareness between all the beneficiaries at the foundation’s headquarters, and conducting awareness session.
And as part of this campaign, Makhzoumi foundation’s midwife delivered an educational session about breast cancer, in addition to a practical section about self-checking for 66 women aged between 35 and 55 years in Irshad and Islah, Hamza Mosque. And at the end, 15 women were provided with a free mammography.
